Would You Allow Your Kids To Join The Military Knowing There Is A Traitor In The White House? [View all]

Just so you know. My wife and I are both Navy veterans. No big deal. We served single enlistments, then went to college and life has been OK. We're both bootstrap kids from difficult backgrounds and the military helped us get somewhere. My wife went on to get a Phd. in psychology. Mostly paid for by the Navy. I talk people into buying things they don't actually need.

We work very hard, but life has been good to us, and the time we spent in the military served us well.

We have two kids. One is a senior in high school, the other is a sophomore. Both boys. The plan was that just like their parents they too would serve, then go to college. It is a family tradition. My father also served in the Navy.

Now we are having second thoughts. What if Trump really is in Putin's pocket? And what if we go to war? Would you feel good about having your kids in a military where the Commander In Chief is possibly the agent of a hostile foreign power? One whose aim would be to kill as many American military people as possible?

We are leaning against it. Neither of us are sure we want our two boys serving in a military run by Donald Trump.

Would you?
